Better file encoding support

Posted by Edouard on 24 février 2011

We released another small update to Web Translate It yesterday evening. You shouldn’t see much difference. However if you have unusual file encoding requirements, this should interest you.

Files used to be exclusively generated in UTF-8, with the exception of Apple .strings files, which were encoded in UTF-16 Little Endian.

Web Translate It now detect and save the original encoding of your master file. When you download your language files, they will be encoded with the same encoding as the original.

Here’s an example: if you upload a master Apple .strings file encoded in UTF-16LE, you’ll download UTF-16LE encoded files. On the other hand, if you upload a master Apple .strings file encoded in UTF-8, you’ll get UTF-8 encoded files.
